Ryanair held on 25th November its annual European Works Council meeting in Dublin where it announced that it had concluded 5 year pay agreements with all 76 of its pilot bases across Europe, and has now commenced a similar process with its cabin crew, after its 2 largest bases at Dublin and London Stansted airports voted to accept 5 year deals incorporating pay increases, improved rosters and rapid promotion opportunities, as Ryanair’s low fare model continues to grow strongly.

It said 90% of staff members at its largest cabin crew bases in Dublin and London-Stansted had voted in a secret ballot to accept five-year deals incorporating what it described as pay increases, improved rosters and rapid promotion opportunities.

Ryanair’s Chief People Officer, Eddie Wilson said: “Having this year completed 5 year pay deals for all of our 76 pilot bases, we are now rolling this process out to our cabin crew bases, starting with the two largest at Dublin and Stansted, where we have now negotiated improved pay and better roster deal for our cabin crew. We will now roll this process out to the 74 other cabin crew bases across Europe.

“The fact that Ryanair is continuing to use our improving financial performance to improve the pay and conditions of our frontline people underlines the long standing success of Ryanair’s collective bargaining model, which continues to deliver improved pay and conditions as well as job security for our pilots and cabin crew at a time when their counterparts in other European airlines are facing job cuts, pay cuts or are engaged in industrial action” he added.

Ryanair is Europe’s favourite airline, operating more than 1,800 daily flights from 76 bases, connecting 200 destinations in 31 countries on a fleet of over 300 Boeing 737 aircraft.
